CAD Designers on the Joys of Temp. Jobs

November 25, 2013

As you may know by now, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is a great mixture of technology and art. More companies are requesting CAD-Designers to aid their company; however, many companies look to temporary workers for outsourcing. There are many benefits to hiring temporary CAD-Designers, also referred to as “temps.” It is important to understand the pros and cons of being hired as a temp, which are outlined below.

Temporary Workers Make a Difference

Over time, the use of temps has shifted from general work to more specific responsibilities. Companies now require temps for occupations such as nurses, scientists, lawyers, accountants, and everything in between. So how do you know if working as a temp is best for you?

Statistics do not lie: more than 1.5 million people in the United States currently hold temp positions. Working as a temporary CAD-Designer will help enable you to fill in the gaps of a company as needed. For example, other employees may have a leave of absence for personal reasons in which the company needs to find help to pick up any slack. Fluctuations in high seasons that demand more work than the company is able to produce normally also requires temporary help.

Hiring temps supports the overall productivity of the work environment. Flexibility in temporary positions can sometimes lead to full time jobs, depending on job performance. Temporary CAD-Designers can not only help with a company’s bottom line, but can also show a company how necessary the position is to the overall company infrastructure.

Cons of Temporary Working

It is also important to be aware of the cons of temporary working. Just like every new employee, temps need to be trained, which requires time and resources. Depending on the company, there has also been some recorded inner tension among permanent and temporary employees.

Among one of the tougher issues of contracting temps is legal matters. It is necessary to have an agreement with the temp that will outline benefits (among other matters)  in comparison to permanent workers. Temporary workers should feel just as valued as their permanent counterparts, or else productivity is stalled. Temporary workers are no less important than any other person among the company and should be handled with caution.
